The Smith Work Boot


The Smith Work Boot is our take on the classic Australian Chelsea work boot. The elastic sits lower than our dress Jack Gusset boots, so it's able to be worn more casually with pants and even shorts.

The Milton last offers a more rounded generous toe box than our Jack Gusset Boot and it is designed to allow for a padded innersole (provided) or thick socks (by removing innersole).

Currently available in store in full sizes only from Men's 6 AU to 11 AU. They are a unisex style so this is akin to ladies size 8-13 AU in the last size.

Fitting Guide:

Made on our Milton last, which has the same toe shape as our Cameron but is deeper to allow for a 3mm padded sock (removable padded innersole that comes with the boots). Currently available to try on in full sizes from size Men's 6AU to 11AU in an E fitting (or ladies 8 - 13AU).

These are a snug fit to get on, but should feel generous at the toe when on. Removing the innersole will allow for thicker socks, higher insteps or mild orthotics.

We'd typically find customers wear a half size down in this boot (like our Gordons with the Gordon or Cameron last) from their typical size in our Jack Gusset Dress boot. The Milton last fits similarly to the Cameron last. If you have a high instep, as this is not a lace up boot (less flexibility) you might find you wear the same size as your dress boot, or you may need to remove the 3mm padded innersole to give yourself more room depth-wise.

As some sizing examples, Jess is a 14 in the Cameron E fitting for his Gordon boots and fits the same size for the Smith Boot with the same socks.

Grace fits a size 8 Charlie last D fitting and fits the size 6 Milton E fitting last in the Smith Boot.

Krystina fits a size 9 Charlie last D fitting and fits the size 7 Milton E fitting last in the Smith Boot with her same thick socks.

David is a size 8.5 in his Gordon boots on the Cameron last, but has a higher than normal instep and preferred the fit of the size 9 in the Smith Boot with his explorer socks.
